It's the ***** ya love to hate with a new song
Nothing but a come-up, but ain't that a *****
But I refuse to switch even though
Cause soon as y'all get some dough
Moving out your neighborhood
Little kids jumping on me
Living way out
Trying to be White or a Jew
Get the hell out
House ***** scum
Before you end up broke
I ain't saying no names, you know who you are

It started off slow and then you start climbing
So you gave your other style a test
Now look at yourself, boy you done flip-flopped
Don't you know they ain't down with the team
Put a bug in your ear and now you crossed over
They'll have a new ***** next year
No more white fans and no more soul
When you find out the black folks don't want you back
You was just like the ***** in the first verse
And wipe that stupid-*** smile off your face
Now I'm a be brief

Find a mirror and take a look, G
But you're quick to point the finger at me
Black man can't be no yuppie
You don't associate with the Negroes
But Jack is calling you a ****** behind your back
I don't need you to correct my broken English
You ain't white
Cause you can't pass
With your black ***
But in reality, you're shorter than a midge
Get a grip, oreo and be true to the game
